Hope Hollow Celebrates Major Milestone

10,000 nights of lodging for cancer patients.

“Living in a small, rural community almost two hours from Columbus makes cancer treatment even more ominous. It’s not just the length of the drive… it’s going from a gravel road to four lanes of cutthroat traffic. The anxiety of what needs to be faced is compounded by having to get where you need to go to have chemicals or radiation put into your body…overwhelming…Honestly, I was more fearful of the travel back and forth…and that’s where Hope Hollow stepped in… Words cannot express my appreciation for the time I was able to stay in a hotel in Columbus between my treatments. The opportunity to rest and relax instead of the anxiety of driving back and forth…so appreciated.”
